TV/Film watch: Winter in Wartime

A while ago I enthused here about the book Winter in Wartime by Jan Terlouw. Yesterday evening I watched the film, which was very different. It’s a Dutch language film with few subtitles but easy to follow. The filming is very beautiful; hard to forget the image of Michiel pedalling his bike furiously through the snowy landscape. I suppose it’s inevitable that films should be made more exciting than books, so far worse things happen in the film and there are a couple of harrowing scenes. It’s a short film (always a plus with me) and well worth watching, although I found the book more atmospheric.
